Weekly Hashtag: #AwkwardFamilyWard


Whether or not you’re married, you’ve been in a family ward. You might have substituted in primary and played with the kids. Or, if you were a missionary, you took your investigators to gospel principles and watched them learn.

But sometimes it’s just downright uncomfortable. On the first Sunday of the month, you just never knew who was going to bear their testimony and what they’d say. If you brought a friend who wasn’t a member, you were suddenly terrified for them. Sometimes lessons got so off-topic, you wondered if there was any recovery.

What’s an awkward thing that was said or done in your family ward? Tell us! Post something on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram using the hashtag #AwkwardFamilyWard and we’ll feature the best ones online or in print.
